The Premier League all-time table: Man Utd 1st, Arsenal above Chelsea…

Quick Reads
Manchester United celebrate lifting the Premier League title, May 2013.

The Premier League has been with us for 30 years, which amounts to a lot of football being played over the past three decades – but which sides have the best record in the competition?

There have been six ever-presents (Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham) while some teams have only spent one season in the sun.

But who tops the all-time Premier League table? Despite their relative struggles over recent years, it’s no surprise to see United well clear ahead of everybody else – winning 13 league titles will generally set you ahead of your rivals.

Arsenal were second for many years but have found themselves gradually drawn in by Chelsea over the past two decades. There are just three points between the London rivals.

Manchester City are zooming up the standings too, despite playing in the Football League for five seasons during the late 90s and early 2000s.

The highest team currently not playing in the Premier League are 1995 title winners Blackburn Rovers, who are currently 12th in the all-time standings, above the likes of Leeds United and Leicester City.

Here’s the all-time table in full, representing every Premier League match played between August 1992 and May 2022. Those in bold denote a team currently playing in the top flight.
